This restaurant is a hole in the wall. It's located about a half hour away from the apartment but if you are a foodie, it's sure to please. They have one of the BEST home cooked Italian foods I have ever had (and I eat out a lot). Their lasagna and deep fried zucchini blossoms are to die for. They pride themselves on offering the most authentic Italian cuisine this side of the Big Apple!

The Niagara Parkway, is a scenic road in Ontario that travels on the Canadian side of the Niagara River from the town of Fort Erie to Niagara-on-the-Lake. The parkway was referred to by Sir Winston Churchill, having been driven down it, as "the prettiest Sunday afternoon drive in the world." You will travel past several historic wineries and estates and they all offer tastings at prices next to nothing. I would highly recommend a visit.
